Skutis — the new way to ride

In a country of 280 million people where the majority is riding motorbikes, it is hard to imagine another way of transport. But one new kind of vehicle can change it all and it is called – Skutis. Propelled 100% by electricity, it is environmentally friendly, noiseless, and fumeless. Despite of their light weight, skutis can go up to 50 km/h and they are even completely foldable! You can also charge your sku- tis at any standard 220v socket; same as you would charge your laptop or mobile phone.

While skutis are already a successful new lifestyle in Singapore, they are yet to be discovered in Bali, but they are here, because of Jan-Hendrik Jurgens – Henry – who fell in love with Indonesia: “I visited Bali 10 years ago for the first time and I had a positive cultural shock. As a result, I enrolled in Southeast Asian studies, learned Indonesian, and moved in 2015 to Singapore, where I got inspired to bring skutis to Indonesia as well” – said Henry, founder and owner of Skutis Corporation.

In congested areas skutis are real time savers and they save money as well. For 100 kilometers, it costs only about 2800 Rupiah to charge them. Skutis also doesn’t require any registration, driving license or tax payments.
